Carson and Xena

Meet Carson and his Diabetes Alert Dog in training, Xena


Carson’s Story

In the morning I just wake up and make sure Carson’s still alive. That’s not a worry every family has.- Carson’s mother.

Carson has a new normal, thanks to the 2 year old black lab cross that has come into his life.

Diagnosed with diabetes at age 3, Carson’s life turned into a 24 hour a day monitoring.  His parents were terrified that he’d die during the night.  The family lived a life full of fear, holidays were nightmares, nights were nightmares.

The nightmares relaxed to a dream when Xena began training to be Carson’s Diabetes Alert Dog.  Xena goes everywhere with Carson, and Carson CAN go everywhere, thanks to Xena.

Carson and Xena, Friends for Life.
